Walking on Exmoor

The Exmoor National Park has 600 miles of well maintained and signposted Rights of Way of which 270 miles are exclusively Footpaths.

The Exmoor National Park publishes details of walks suitable for various abilites and age groups. This information is available at the Exmoor National Park visitor and information centres situated in all the main towns and villages. The terrain on Exmoor can be quite demanding with steep sided valleys and numerous hills. Less strenuous walking can be found by following river courses or on tracks around the nearby Wimbleball Lake.

National Park organised and escorted walks are available at regular intervals. The dates and details can be found in the copy of the publication 'Exmoor Visitor' which will be in the accommodation.

An Ordnance Survey map for the area is provided in the accommodation for use by visitors. The mapping of additional open Access Land to comply with the CROW Act was completed during 2005.

Several Footpaths and Bridleways pass nearby to Station Cottage with walks to Luxborough, Brompton Regis or further afield through forest and farm land.

Visitors are asked to respect the provisions of the new Countryside Code. In particular; farm gates to be left open or closed as they are found; dogs should be under control and on leads when anywhere near livestock or during the nesting season for ground nesting birds in spring.
